You want to beat the eggs pretty vigorously for about a minute - the eggs will change color, slightly lightening. (I just use a fork) You could even add something like cream or horseradish to change the volume a bit. But the key is beating.

What's the key to getting that?


A little milk or half and half. About 1 tbsp for 2 eggs. Also, medium low heat. When you put the eggs in the pan, allow them to sit for 10 seconds before moving them around with the spatula. This produces nice fluffy eggs.

I don't like the debate on how to cook eggs because it's a personal choice of what you like better. You say "destroys the texture". What if i don't like the texture? Which is really the case for runny eggs. I just downright had the gooey texture to it. I agree that there are indeed a lot of black and white, right and wrong in cooking, but there are certain things that come down to personal preference and there's a good bit of grey involved.



What if I don't like the texture of a perfectly cooked steak and prefer it destroyed with it being super overcooked? Same thing, no?

**** that. Its wrong.


I find it snobbish to tell people what they like in food. by right and wrong in food i was talking more procedural things like knife cuts. to tell someone else something doesn't taste good is like telling someone else they're wrong for enjoying country, rap, rock, or whatever their favorite music type is.


I feel where you are coming from but I just can't be like that whenever I'm grilling steaks. I refuse to ruin them, no matter how anyone claims they like them. I'll make them cook their own :pop:

While on a particularly long deployment, I won a SPAM-eating contest by eating an entire can of spam in just over a minute. My reward (besides pride) was an old Waylon Jennings CD.

I made this dip for thanksgiving and it was a huge hit. It's essentially a cranberry salsa layered over cream cheese and served with crackers. It took about 15 minutes to make.
Spoiler:
Cranberry Cream Cheese Dip

Time: 15 minutes prep + 4 hours refrigeration
Yield: 15 servings

1 12 oz package fresh cranberries
1/4 C green onion, chopped
1/4 C cilantro, chopped
1 small jalapeno pepper
1 1/4 C sugar
1/4 t cumin
2 T lemon juice
dash salt
2 8 oz packages cream cheese

1. Put your cranberries in a food processor until coarsely chopped.
2. Chop up your green onion, cilantro, and jalapeno pepper into small pieces. Careful of the seeds now.
3. Add all ingredients (but the cream cheese and the wheat thins) into a bowl. Mix them all together, cover and store in the fridge for at least 4 hours. The sugar needs some time to soak in to the cranberries and break up their bitter taste.
4. When you are ready to serve, place your cream cheese bricks on a plate.
5. Spread the cream cheese out as evenly as you can.
6. Pour your cranberry mixture over the cream cheese.
7. Spread it all around.
8. Serve immediately with Wheat Thins, Ritz Crackers or Tortilla Chips.

I'm lusting after the "Modernist Cuisine at Home" set. It's on sale for 100 right now at Barnes and Noble. If only my fiance hadn't bought my christmas gift already.... Oh well, maybe next year!m

I think that might end up under my treee, BH71, as a compromise. I've asked for a modernist cooking class for Christmas, and those are pretty thin on the ground. So fingers crossed that MCAH finds its way to my as a consolation.

But for tomorrow's dinner....... brined pork chops with warm fingerling potato salad and chestnut aioli. I have no idea what that will taste like, but it should be fun in the making!

tifosi, I managed to wrangle my mom into getting me the MCAH for Christmas and I even managed to get it early (long story), it's amazing! The recipes are incredible, each one is more mouth-watering than the one before. And the pictures are pretty much food pron. I can't wait to delve into it. Definitely worth the waaaay discounted price I paid. The fact that Barnes & Noble lets you stack coupons on top of sale items and their 10% member discount is awesome.

Yea. The B&N by me had MCAH on sale for 20 percent off. I tacked on a email coupon for 20% and the member discount. $140 down to $80. Called my mom from the store and told her what she bought me for Christmas. :pop:

Curious question to my fellow cooks. Getting the MCAH book has made me wonder what other cookbooks are worth owning that I don't have. I'm curious what some of the LGP go-to books are.

Just bought my fiancée (and myself) a Shun Ken Onion 10" slicer to go with my Wüsthof game processing kit and my Henckels Twin Four Star II 8" Chef's knife. I think I may be more excited to get it than she is! Amazon had it on a Lightning Deal for $150!

Dammit Mac, I was trying to screw with some people on here. Now everyone knows. We were trying not to let a few select individuals know due to past interactions with them. But, she already knows about it, as I'm sure you know, if I tried to spend $100 on Amazon without clearing it with her first, the outcome would not be good until the 25th for that decision.
